23.04.16 – Cleveland Cavaliers 101 @ Detroit Pistons 91

Our Picks –

Detroit are 7-3, Cleveland are 4-6 over their last 10, and lost this matchup in Detroit 106-101 last week.

The Cavs are struggling to find consistency coming into the pointy end of the season, but it seems they have found the answer in……….6-11 Larry Sanders? Sanders has agreed to terms for the rest of the year, despite not playing in the NBA for 2 seasons following a lack of commitment to the game.

That’s desperation for you.

We’ll take the line for the Motor City tonight thanks.

Best Bet: Detroit +8.0 @1.91 (-110)

04.04.16 – Indiana Pacers 92 @ New York Knicks 87

Picks –

The Indiana form line is a nightmare for punters over their last 20 –

Most Recent – WLWLWLWLWLLLLLLWWWWW. So, apparently tonight, they are due for a loss… :/

The Knicks lost 3 of their 4 games in their recent road trip, and the safety of MSG may be just what they need.

Home team at the line. New York lead this series 2-1.

Best Bet: New York +3.5 @1.91 (-110)

Feeling Lucky: New York WIN @2.35 (+135)

04.11.14 – Oklahoma City Thunder 85 @ Brooklyn Nets 116

Picks –

Brooklyn are 3-7, OKC 6-4 over their last 10.

On the 2 games that we’ve bothered to bet on Net’s games this year, they’ve won, and they’ve killed us. At this point they are in our “Never again” basket.

The best bet is the overs, however…. deep breath*

15.12.15 – New Orleans Pelicans 101 @ Portland Trail Blazers 105

Picks –

It does feel like the Blazers have played every night for the last week.

Winning the last 5 out of 6 games (one loss in OT to a game winner) has them as one of the in-form teams in the league.

The Pelicans aren’t being honest with themselves in terms of the DeMarcus Cousins trade as it hasn’t exactly worked as once thought. New Orleans will be able to own the paint but do they have enough fire power to stop the Blazers backcourt?

Best Bet: Total Points Over 216.5 @1.91 (-110)

Feeling Lucky: Portland WIN @2.33 (+133)

10.02.15 – Golden State Warriors 89 @ Philadelphia 76ers 84
31.12.14 – Philadelphia 76ers 86 @ Golden State Warriors 126

Picks –

Golden State need to win and tonight will bring what they need. They are now 2nd in the West with the Spurs holding the tie breaker and with the starting lineup all rested up, tonight will no doubt be another victory (won the last 7 against the 76ers). What matters is, will it be convincing enough to beat the handicap as they are too short for a straight up win?

Best Bet: Nope.

Feeling Lucky: Total Points Over 221.0 @1.91 (-110)
